GoldenPalace.com Adds to Motley Collection of Items-Proceeds Going to Charity

CLIFTON, N.J. - Sept. 25 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Internet casino GoldenPalace.com expanded their collection of weird and wacky pop-culture items this weekend when they bought the first "T.M.X." Elmo doll off the production line for $4200.

GoldenPalace.com buys first off the assembly line TMX ElmoThis particular "T.M.X. Elmo," also referred to as Tickle Me Elmo Extreme, was presented to the TV show "The View" to celebrate the show's 10th anniversary. The toy is autographed by Elmo muppeteer Kevin Clash and Mattel President Neil Friedman.

The View placed the item up for auction to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and GoldenPalace.com won with a high bid of $4200. The Boys & Girls Clubs of America offers programs and services to promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.

"This purchase is a wonderful opportunity to help a needy cause, and a great chance to generate some headlines and exposure," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "Elmo will have a wonderful home in our traveling museum of American pop-culture items."

T.M.X Elmo is expected to be this season's hottest selling toy, and has already made headlines for its insane popularity among parents. A man in Tampa, Florida was robbed at gunpoint for his toy, saying to a 911 operator that the robber said he would have no problem shooting if Elmo wasn't handed over.

Released last Tuesday, Elmo sold out in 10 minutes at the Toys "R" Us in New York's Times Square. This latest edition in the Tickle Me series not only wiggles and giggles but can stand up by itself after falling over.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - Sept. 13 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- GoldenPalace.com made room in their ever-increasing collection of pop-culture oddities by purchasing an item that brings new meaning to the term 'celebrity crap'. The online casino bought Suri Cruise's Bronzed Baby Poop for $10,000, which will be going to the Kristin Brooks Hope Center.

Send2Press imageThe Bronzed Baby Poop is an original sculpture by artist Daniel Edwards who was commissioned to create the work of art by the Capla Kesting Fine Art gallery. According to their website, the poop is "purportedly cast from the excretion of [Suri's] first solid meal...the baby poop [is cast] with a bronze finish and mounted on a base that includes a brass plate engraved with baby Suri's name."

*(Photo Caption: Daniel Edwards' creation of Suri Cruise's first poop.)

The proceeds from this sale will go to the Kristin Brooks Hope Center, a charity dedicated to preventing suicide by treating various types of depression. Ironically, one of the Hope Center's specialties is treating post partum depression; the illness that actress Brooke Shields sought treatment for, resulting in a heavy rebuke from Scientologist Tom Cruise. The actor has since apologized for the incident.

"This is a wonderful charity and we are pleased to help contribute to their admirable efforts," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "It is rather surreal that a couple of pieces of baby poop could raise money for charity, but anything is possible these days. We welcome the bronzed poop into our collection of strange items."

GoldenPalace.com has made a name for themselves by buying strange and sometimes ridiculous items that make headlines worldwide. Their assortment of oddities is currently touring the US in a traveling museum. Included are such well-known items as the Britney Spears Pregnancy Test, William Shatner's Kidney Stone, and the wildly popular Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich. The baby poop will take it's rightful place in Golden Palace's motley collection of American pop-culture.

Britney Caught Biting K-Fed’s Corndog

Internet Casino adds to their collection of Britney Spears items

SEATTLE, Wash. - Sept. 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- GoldenPalace.com has become famous over the past few years for their outlandish eBay purchases, but this latest auction really bites. The Internet casino added to their Britney Spears collection by purchasing a vacuum-sealed half-eaten egg-salad sandwich and corn dog which allegedly belonged to the pop-star and her husband Kevin Federline.

The seller, working as a caterer at a Music Industry event dinner, was lucky enough to have his section blessed one night with the Britster and K-Fed. When the couple couldn't finish their food, he had the presence of mind and pop-culture savvy to know that half-eaten celebrity chow could actually be worth something these days. In this case, it netted him $520, not a bad tip for an egg-salad sandwich and corn dog dinner.

As he puts it on his eBay page: "Britney ate [one half of the sandwich], and had a few bites of this half before being done with it...Kevin Federline had a few things to eat that night, but the only leftover item I managed to pick up from him was this corn dog. Kevin had two bites of the corndog and then set it down. Later I went to clear their plates with it, and as I was picking up the plate Britney picked it up really quick giggled and said 'I can't let that go to waste' and quickly took a big bite off of the stick end of the corn dog."

This is the latest Britney Spears item that GoldenPalace.com has in their collection of weird and wacky pop-culture phenomenon. It will take its rightful place of honor beside her wedding invitation, baby pacifier, a half-full bottle of water, and the ultimate Britney item...the infamous Pregnancy Test.

"Britney Spears and Kevin Federline are one of those couples that are always in the news and tabloids," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "As long as people keep putting items like this up for auction, we'll be keeping our eyes open for them."

It will be interesting to see if any other of the pop star's items make it to the GoldenPalace.com collection, but with her saliva and urine already securely in their possession, the casino might even be able to clone Britney pretty soon.

Alleged Suri Cruise’s Baby Poop Bronzed for Charity – Healthy ‘Evidence’ of Tom and Katie’s Baby Goes on eBay

Author: Capla Kesting Fine Art
Dateline: Mon, 28 Aug 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BROOKLYN, N.Y. - Aug. 28 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Bronzed baby shoes are out, and bronzed baby poop is in, for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes as they celebrate baby's 'first poop.' The commemoration of baby Suri Cruise's first poop strives to be the evidence of her existence for a public yet to see photos of the superstar couple's four month old infant. The sclupture, 'Suri Cruise commissioned bronzed baby poop' goes on display August 30th at Capla Kesting Fine Art in Brooklyn's Williamsburg gallery district and will be offered on eBay with the proceeds to benefit the March of Dimes.”

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - Aug. 28 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Bronzed baby shoes are out, and bronzed baby poop is in, for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes as they celebrate baby's "first poop." The commemoration of baby Suri Cruise's first poop strives to be the evidence of her existence for a public yet to see photos of the superstar couple's four month old infant. The sculpture, "Suri Cruise commissioned bronzed baby poop" goes on display August 30th at Capla Kesting Fine Art in Brooklyn's Williamsburg gallery district and will be offered on eBay with the proceeds to benefit the March of Dimes.

© Dan Edwards"Suri's bronzed poop" is purportedly inspired by the excretion of her first solid meal. "Babies mostly breastfeed for the first four months, so a baby's first meal of solid food may be a baby's first meal at the dinner table," said David Kesting, director of Capla Kesting Fine Art. "A bronzed cast of baby's first poop can be a meaningful memento for the family."

The sculpture, "Suri's bronzed baby poop," will be exhibited under a display case until the eBay auction ends, explains Kesting, but he admits they've commissioned artist Daniel Edwards, who was inspired to create the bronzed cast, to produce a limited edition plaster replica.

*(Photo Caption: Sign of health: Suri Cruise's first poop commemorated for charity.)

Casting of the baby poop with a bronze finish and mounted on a base that includes a brass plate engraved with baby Suri's name, comes at a time when Tom Cruise is increasingly known for his eccentricity. Capla Kesting assures the trend for bronzing baby poop isn't so eccentric and simply follows the popularity of the critically acclaimed children's book, "Everybody Poops."

The gallery says it supports Tom Cruise's and Katie Holmes's decision to withhold images of baby Suri from the public, though gossip magazines speculate the reason may be that Suri may be deformed. The gallery asserts its bronzed baby poop reinforces claims, made after celebrity sightings of Suri, that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have a healthy baby.

Reception for Suri's bronzed baby poop and presentation of the proceeds raised by Capla Kesting Fine Art for March Of Dimes will be held September 8th from 6:00 to 9:00 at 121 Roebling St., Brooklyn.

The gallery can be reached at www.caplakesting.com or by phone at 917-650-3760.

Editorial Note: Send2Press has not verified any claims as to the alleged source of the subject material used for the "bronzed poop," nor should it be inferred that the poop has come from the actual child of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. Please see later updated news releases related to this topic from the same week.

Character from ‘Weeds’ Opens Pro-Pot Temple on Hollywood Blvd. – Temple 420 to Be a Hit!

Author: Temple 420 and Reverend Craig X
Dateline: Mon, 21 Aug 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “HOLLYWOOD, CA - Aug. 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Is art imitating life or what? Craig X who sells pot on Showtime's hit show 'Weeds' is opening a pro-pot Temple on Hollywood Blvd this week. In the first season he plays himself as the owner of the 'Bodhi Sativa Care Givers Club.' In season two, this week's episode (August 21-25), 'Cooking with Jesus' he appears as the owner of cannabis club called the 'Mohasky Cup.'”



A R T I C L E:

HOLLYWOOD, CA - Aug. 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Is art imitating life or what? Craig X who sells pot on Showtime's hit show "Weeds" is opening a pro-pot Temple on Hollywood Blvd this week. In the first season he plays himself as the owner of the "Bodhi Sativa Care Givers Club." In season two, this week's episode (August 21-25), "Cooking with Jesus" he appears as the owner of cannabis club called the "Mohasky Cup."

Craig X, the marijuana technical consultant for the first two seasons of "Weeds," was also featured on the recently released first season DVD of "Weeds" (July 2006 Lions Gate) where he provides commentary on an episode he guest starred on. That episode, "The Good Sh*t Lollipop," was nominated for two Emmys (Best Editor and Best Director 2006). Further, Rubin is featured in a documentary that Lion's Gate produced called "Smoke and Mirrors," which is available on the first season's DVD.

Reverend Craig X Rubin, the Temple's founder, is a recognized and respected leader in the legal Marijuana industry with more than 20 years of experience; recently being featured in GQ magazine (Aug. 2006), High Times (Aug. 2006), and he will be the focus of an upcoming story in the September 2006 issue of Cannabis Culture.

Temple 420, located at 7095 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028 is announcing their opening for business. The Judeo-Christian "Temple 420" (www.temple420.org). a CA Not-for-Profit Corporation, will start religious services on Saturday August 26th and open the retail store shortly afterward.

Temple services will follow this schedule: Friday nights at sundown there will be a candle lighting ceremony. Sales of all sacraments will cease during the Sabbath from sundown Friday night to sundown Saturday evening.

On Saturday the services will primarily discuss the Old Testament on Sundays mainly the New Testament.

Temple 420 kicked off its ministry by hosting a wedding on July 29th of this year when a young couple flew in from New Orleans and were married by Reverend Craig X. Wedding ceremonies are performed at the Temple for a basic fee of $420.

"The wedding was a great success. I would love to see people who are into cannabis come to Hollywood to get married rather than flying into Las Vegas," said Craig X Rubin, founder of Temple 420. "If you love God and cannabis then this is the congregation for you."

At the Temple there is a luxurious V-I-P room that Temple Members can rent out by the hour. Additionally, the temple plans to have a variety of events at their Hollywood Blvd. location. Thursday nights, starting on the 24th of August, Temple 420 will have a "Comedy Night" featuring local professional comedians.

The Temple on Hollywood Blvd. is located in a strip mall that is frequented by the rich and famous. So, Temple 420 has added an adjoining retail store that carries couture clothing, plus bong and upscale beauty products.

"I like to call it a bong and beauty shop," says founder Craig X. "Temple 420 is a fashionable couture retail establishment with a 'hippy chic' mentality. I'd say Kitson with an edge." The store sells both men's and women's high fashions, and we do mean HIGH fashion because much of the original clothing is made from hemp blended fabrics.

"Most people have joined on-line," says Rubin of Temple memberships, "but that is only because people can join from all fifty states. Now that we have an actual location near the famous Chinese Theatre on Hollywood's 'Walk-of Fame,' people can sign-up in person at the Temple."

Rubin published his first book last year, "90210 Grow" (304 Pages, Hardback, 6 x 9, ISBN: 0974711004) and has recently written another to be published in the spring of '07 entitled, "Jesus Smokes Weed." It is being released by Quick Trading Publishing in Oakland, CA.

GoldenPalace.com Hosts World Grilled Cheese Eating Championship

LAS VEGAS, NV - June 12 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Only in Sin City could such gluttony be celebrated as it was this weekend, when the International Federation of Competitive Eating was in town, along with online casino GoldenPalace.com for the World Grilled Cheese Eating Championship. The event was part of the Arena Football League ArenaBowl XX Weekend.

Competitive eaters, a growing and increasingly celebrated breed of American athlete, gathered in Las Vegas to compete for the title of GoldenPalace.com World Grilled Cheese Eating Champion. After 10 minutes of furious mastication by the best competitive eaters in the world, Joey Chestnut emerged the victor by eating an unbelievable 47 sandwiches. He also set a new world record with his voracious appetite, shattering the old world record of 36 sandwiches in 10 minutes.

*(Photo Caption: Joey Chestnut breaks record at the GoldenPalace.com grilled cheese eating competition.)

"The grilled cheese sandwich has been unjustly ignored in America," said George Shea, chairman of the International Federation of Competitive Eating before the event. "I believe this contest will highlight the grilled cheese's position as one of history's great sandwiches."

Before the main competition, GoldenPalace.com also offered $100,000 to any amateur that could beat the world record. The best anyone could manage was nine, by Nevada local Mike Justice, proving how difficult it really is for the IFOCE athletes to do what they do.

Inspired by GoldenPalace.com's famous eBay purchase of the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich-which now holds a high position in the ranks of American pop culture-the grilled cheese eating competitions have been crowd-pleasers all over the country, along with other food competitions including ice cream and chocolate valentine hearts.

"Of all our marketing campaigns, the eating competitions are definitely one of the most entertaining," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "Everywhere we go, people have a wonderful time watching these athletes stuff themselves. It really is an incredible thing to watch. Although it would have been great for an aspiring amateur to have won the $100,000 and broken the record, we would like congratulate Joey on his amazing accomplishment."

GoldenPalace.com buys Britney Spears and Kevin Federline Wedding Invitation and Candle

VISTA, CA - June 7 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Usually the wedding invitations go out before the pregnancy test, but online casino GoldenPalace.com has never been the type to play by the rules. The cyber gaming company has purchased an invitation and candle from Britney Spears & Kevin Federline's very secretive wedding for $2,150.

This is a rare Britney Spears and Kevin Federline wedding invitation from their very secret wedding on September 18, 2004. Included in the set is the bag in which the invite was delivered as well as a special note to those in the wedding. It also includes the candle that was the actual wedding favor from the event. The invitation and candle was sold on eBay through 247auctions.com, a site that facilitates the selling of items on eBay.

This unique item will definitely make a great addition to the online casino's existing collection of Britney Spears memorabilia. GoldenPalace.com already owns the famous Britney Spears Home Pregnancy Test, a pacifier that was used by her and her sister Jamie Lynn, and a partially full bottle of water that was left in the hospital by Ms. Spears when she gave birth to Sean Preston.

"Britney Spears and Kevin Federline are always in the public eye," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "When we saw this item up for bid, we knew that we had to add it to our collection. Many of the items we have are of great interest to the general public, and we expect this one to be no different. We'd like to thank 247auctions.com for their help in getting this item sold."

GoldenPalace.com Buys eBay's Extraterrestrial X-ray

SOLANO COUNTY, CA - June 5 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Spending $10,000 to win an eBay auction for an x-ray of a duck with an alien in its stomach may seem strange to most people, but for online casino GoldenPalace.com it's just another day at the office.

On May 21, 2006, an adult male mallard with a broken wing was brought to the International Bird Rescue Research Center (IBRRC), an organization that rescues birds from the devastating effects of oil spills around the world. When the bird was x-rayed, an astoundingly clear image of an alien face was present in the duck's stomach. Since the IBRRC is located in a region of California notorious for its mysterious crop circles, the x-ray was not taken lightly.

"Since aliens are notoriously short, we initially thought the small proportions of the face meant the duck had consumed a juvenile extraterrestrial being. We immediately knew this was something we had never seen before in our 35-year history," said Karen Benzel, the IBRRC Public Affairs Director.

The duck unfortunately passed away due to its injuries and the IBRRC was unable to determine what caused the alien image. A necropsy was done by UC Davis veterinarians and showed the stomach had some grain in it, but no alien. The IBRRC then put the one-of-a-kind item up on eBay, with all the proceeds going toward funding IBRRC's rehabilitation programs. The eBay page received over 135,000 visits.

The x-ray was bought by GoldenPalace.com, the Internet casino that has made headlines worldwide with their eccentric marketing philosophy and outrageous advertising campaigns, including winning hundreds of weird eBay auctions. As a result, the casino has amassed an impressive and eclectic collection of pop culture phenomenon. The x-ray will be in good company along with the world famous Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich and William Shatner's Kidney Stone among others.

"An interesting and unusual item, a wonderful charity opportunity, and loads of public interest...there was no way we were going to pass this up," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "Although the truth may not necessarily be out there, this auction proves the interest definitely is. We'd like to thank the IBRRC, and wish them all the best in their continuing efforts."

Setting the standard in marketing creativity, GoldenPalace.com has devised some of the most exciting and outrageous advertising campaigns in the past few years. Items such as the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Britney Spears' Pregnancy Test, and William Shatner's Kidney Stone have garnered extensive worldwide media attention for the casino. GoldenPalace.com has also used their items and marketing reach to raise awareness and over $1,000,000 for various charities worldwide.
